The ideal time for tree pruning largely depends on the tree species and the specific goals of pruning. For most deciduous trees, late winter or early spring, when the trees are dormant, is optimal. This timing minimises sap loss and reduces the risk of disease transmission. Pruning during dormancy also allows for better visibility of the tree’s structure. However, certain species, like maples, walnuts, and birches, may prefer late spring or early summer pruning to avoid excessive sap flow. In cases where safety is a concern, like with dead or dangerous branches, immediate action is necessary regardless of the season. A professional arborist can give specific advice tailored to your trees and their needs.
